September 11, 2014 Las Vegas, NV.
Over the Edge Sports in Fruita recently took home the trophy after being voted by industry peers as the Best Mountain Bike Shop of 2014 at the Interbike Show held annually in Las Vegas. Accepting the award were shop owners George Gatseos (right) and local racing legend Ross Schnell (third from right), with co-founder Troy Rarick (second from left).
“Ross and I are flattered and honored to receive this recognition from the Interbike organization. We would like to thank our customers and our fantastic staff for all the support and effort, this award would not have happened without you all”, says George Gatseos.
Ross Schnell adds “Having grown up in Fruita, I’ve been around OTE for the better part of my life. Over the Edge was my first bike shop hangout and has supported me since day one. I’m thankful to still be part of such an amazing group of people and share those experiences with the mountain biking community worldwide”.
Troy Rarick added the following reflection: “In the 20 years since we opened a Destination Bike Shop in the most unlikely of places; boarded up downtown Fruita Colorado, over a million people have passed through the Over the EDGE Fruita doorway including every bicycle industry person I know. It was a crazy idea back then, probably still is, but what resonates most to me about this story is that it has always been about the people. This incredible honor is for all those who dug trails in the Western Colorado dirt, hosted the world at the Fruita Fat Tire Festival and believed in the wacky idea of this Grand Valley becoming a World Famous Mountain Bike Destination. Thank You; for being part of this amazing story and for supporting Fruita Mountain Biking and Over the Edge Sports. Come Ride with Us!”
Over the Edge Fruita heads into its 20th of the Fruita Fat Tire Festival and an international hub for mountain biking vacationers, industry visitors, and journalists, most recently a group from VTT Magazine in France doing a feature story on the Grand Valley.
Over the Edge Fruita is the flagship store of the OTE World Group, which includes stores in Sedona, Arizona, Hurricane Utah, and Melrose South Australia. Look for a new store opening mid-2015 in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations.
The trophy is on display at Over the Edge Sports, 202 E Aspen St., in downtown Fruita. Store hours are 9:00am to 6:00pm, 7 days a week.
